The Opinel knife was designed in 1890 by Joseph Opinel. Its simplicity, robustness and functionality have convinced many generations of users. Passed on from one generation to the next, Opinel is considered a unique and timeless household object. Unchanged for over a century, it’s design is one of the most successful of all times. For this reason, Opinel is recognised by the British Victoria and Albert Museum, as being among the 100 best and most recognisable designs. Produced in the heart of the French Alps, the Opinel pocket knives draw simplicity and durability from their mountain roots. Over time, the Opinel folding knife has been adopted in the entire world and is now recognised as a design icon. A mythical object handed down from generation to generation. It remains essential and popular for DIY, camping or picnics in the countryside.
The “Le Petit Chef” complete set is composed of the knife, the peeler and the red finger guard. With the “Le Petit Chef” Collection, Opinel has invented a new way of cooking for children. They feel grown-up as they use real tools and learn the right methods. Three tools specially suited to the expectations of young children. The educational ring helps the child have a secure grip and prevents the hand from slipping onto the blade. The rounded wooden handles are comfortable and soft on the palm. Cutting is made easier without straining by the efficient blades.
Stainless steel is an alloy steel. The addition of chromium increases its resistance to corrosion. Stainless steel does not require any special maintenance.
Beech is the most commonly used wood for the manufacture of Opinel handles. From France, our beech is hard, durable and easy to work. With a homogeneous appearance, its light colour varies from yellow to pink. It is characterized by the presence of numerous small dark dashes.
